Incentive spirometers or breathing exercise devices or sustained maximal inspiration (AMI) are apparatus that are used by adults or children above age of 4 years to strengthen respiratory muscles and increase the ling volume. Breathing exercise equipment are mainly used for pulmonary function test (PFT), in lung diseases such as asthma, bronchitis, emphysema etc. Breathing exercise devices help to increase lung volume in chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases, decrease mucus and fluids in lungs and airway. Breathing exercise devices are recommended in cases such as trauma injury causing breathing problem, pneumonia, rib damage, and atelectasis after surgery. These devices are also used by runners, sports players, swimmers etc. in order to boost lung capacity and endure stress while performing strenuous physical activities. Vast range of breathing exercise devices are available ranging from cost-effective breathing exercise devices used in primary care settings to advanced devices for personal use, home care settings and private hospitals. Some of the popular brands of breathing exercise devices include AirLife Volumetric Spirometer, Voldyne 5000 Volumetric Exercise, DHD CliniFLO Flow Breathing Exerciser, Hudson RCI Lung Volume Exerciser, Frolov’s Respiration Training Device and others.
